25 mees romantiese bestemmings vir Valentynsdag

Verras dus u spesiale persoon hierdie jaar met 'n reis na Ashland wat hulle nooit sal vergeet nie.

Dit gebeur elke jaar. U kom net van die vakansieseisoen af-u weet, die reeks swaarkryders wat van Thanksgiving tot Nuwejaar loop. En net wanneer u weer u kop in die regte wêreld terugbring, kom Valentynsdag op.

Jy wil jou spesiale iemand bederf met iets goeds - jy doen dit regtig. Maar meer gereeld as nie, haal u na werk wyn, sjokolade of rose op.

Want die lewe raak immers besig.

Maar hierdie jaar sal anders wees. Wys vir u beduidende ander hoeveel u omgee deur hulle te verras met 'n reis na een van Amerika se 25 beste Valentynsdagbestemmings. Te midde van 'n koue en donker Februarie, sal die wegbreek julle baie goed doen.

Laat sak die naald op 'n paar Marvin Gaye, en soos die liedjie sê: 'Let's Get It On.'

Mense vier al eeue lank Valentynsdag - ook bekend as Sint Valentynsdag, of die Fees van Sint Valentyn -. Die datum het in die 14de eeu verband gehou met romantiese liefde.

Teen die 18de eeu in Engeland het liefhebbers hul liefde met sjokolade en kaarte begin vier. Op hierdie tydstip het 2 van Valentynsdag se mees blywende ikone - Cupido en die tradisionele hartvorm - prominent geword.

Valentynsdag word nou oor die hele wêreld gevier. Benewens die beplanning van 'n spesiale reis na een van Amerika se mees romantiese Valentynsdagbestemmings, wil u ook u Valentynsdag 'n internasionale wending gee? Of is jou liefie van oorsee?

As dit die geval is, kyk hier na 'n paar prettige Valentynsdagtradisies van regoor die wêreld.

Suid-Korea

Suid -Koreane is so lief vir Valentynsdag dat hulle van Februarie tot April een keer per maand variasies van die vakansie vier. Op 14 Februarie is dit alles julle, dames. Op hierdie datum waai vroue hul sjokolade met sjokolade, lekkergoed en blomme.

Op 14 Maart, bekend as White Day, is die mans aan die beurt. Sjokolade, lekkergoed en blomme bly deel van die vakansie, maar hierdie keer word van mans verwag om dinge na die volgende vlak te neem deur hul liefie 'n geskenk te gee.

En as u alleen in Suid -Korea is, is daar ook vakansie vir u. Dit word gepas 'Swart dag' genoem. Op hierdie dag vul enkellopendes hul hartseer, leë harte met donker bakke jajangmyeon, of swartboonpasta-noedels.

Denemarke

Valentynsdag is 'n relatief nuwe vakansie in Denemarke. As u 'n vrou in Denemarke is, kan u 'n gaekkebrev of 'n 'grapbrief' ontvang. In die anonieme brief - gemaak van spesiale fancy papier - is daar 'n grap of snaakse rympie. Raai die sender, en kry 'n paaseier later in die jaar.

Frankryk

Parys, die Stad van Ligte. Word algemeen beskou as een van die mees romantiese plekke op die planeet. Maar 'n tradisionele Franse viering, genaamd die loterie d'amour, of 'teken vir liefde', maak 'n episode van Die oujongkerel lyk soos kinderspeletjies.

Mans en vroue roep na mekaar vanuit huise wat na mekaar kyk. Paartjies brei uit, en mans wat nie tevrede is met hul pasmaat nie, laat die een vrou vir die ander.

Vroue wat ongebonde gelaat is, kom bymekaar om 'n vreugdevuur, brand prentjies, vloek en beledig die wat hul harte gebreek het.

As dit vir u klink asof hierdie tradisie 'n bietjie handuit ruk, het u reg. Loterie d'amours is nou in Frankryk verbied.

Sjina

In plaas van Valentynsdag vier die Chinese Qixi, oftewel die Sewende Nagfees, wat elke jaar op die sewende dag van die sewende maanmaand val.

Op hierdie datum bied Chinese vroue vrugte aan Zhinu, die dogter van 'n hemelse koning, in die hoop dat sy hulle sal help om 'n goeie man te vind. Daarbenewens gaan paartjies na die tempel om te bid vir goeie gesondheid en voorspoed.

Wallis

Om 'n Walliese kersie by u Valentynsdag te voeg, hoef u nie u silwerware -laai te soek nie.

Die Walliesers het eeue lank ingewikkelde lepels uitgeruil as tekens van hul liefde. Om 'n hoefyster te sny beteken baie geluk, wiele is 'n teken van ondersteuning, en sleutels beteken dat die ontvanger nou die sleutels van die gewer se hart het.

Tegnies vier die Walliesers glad nie Valentynsdag nie. In plaas daarvan vier hulle Saint Dwynwen op 25 Januarie.

Engeland

Op Valentynsdag in sommige dele van Engeland lê vroue 5 lourierblare op hul kussing. Die idee is om aangename drome oor hul toekomstige mans aan te moedig.

In ander dele van Engeland wag kinders vir Jack Valentine om lekkergoed en geskenke op hul stoep te los.

Filippyne

In die Filippyne is massa -troues algemeen op Valentynsdag. Op die groot dag kom honderde byeen in die openbare ruimte om hul liefde te verklaar of hul geloftes te hernu.

Italië

Volgens die Italiaanse tradisie betaal dit vir jong, alleenstaande vroue om vroeg op Valentynsdag wakker te word - omdat die eerste man wat hulle sien binne 'n jaar hul man word.

Brasilië

Op 12 Junie vier Brasiliane Dia dos Namorados, oftewel "Minnaarsdag". Hulle vier die geleentheid met sjokolade, blomme en kaartjies. Maar in ware Brasiliaanse styl is daar ook musiekfeeste en optredes regoor die land. En die volgende dag is Saint Anthony's Day, ter ere van die beskermheilige van die huwelik.

Suid-Afrika

In Suid -Afrika dra vroue hul harte op hul moue - letterlik. Op Valentynsdag is dit gebruiklik om die naam van diegene in wie u belangstel op 'n papierhart te skryf en dit aan u mou vas te maak. So op Valentynsdag in Suid -Afrika word u dalk net verbaas deur 'n geheime bewonderaar.

Nou het u 'n paar unieke geskenkidees vir u geliefde. Laat ons nou die voorspel stop en uitvind waarvoor ons almal hier is - Amerika se 25 mees romantiese bestemmings vir Valentynsdag.

Om 'n Walliese kersie by u Valentynsdag te voeg, hoef u nie u silwerware -laai te soek nie.

Eeue lank het die Walliesers ingewikkelde lepels uitgeruil as tekens van hul liefde. Om 'n hoefyster te sny beteken baie geluk, wiele is 'n teken van ondersteuning, en sleutels beteken dat die ontvanger nou die sleutels van die gewer se hart het.

Tegnies vier die Walliesers glad nie Valentynsdag nie. In plaas daarvan vier hulle Saint Dwynwen op 25 Januarie.

Engeland

Op Valentynsdag in sommige dele van Engeland lê vroue 5 lourierblare op hul kussing. Die idee is om aangename drome oor hul toekomstige mans aan te moedig.

In ander dele van Engeland wag kinders vir Jack Valentine om lekkergoed en klein geskenke op hul stoep te laat.

Filippyne

In die Filippyne is massa -troues algemeen op Valentynsdag. Op die groot dag kom honderde byeen in die openbare ruimte om hul liefde te verklaar of hul geloftes te hernu.

Italië

Volgens die Italiaanse tradisie betaal dit vir jong, alleenstaande vroue om vroeg op Valentynsdag wakker te word - omdat die eerste man wat hulle sien binne 'n jaar hul man word.

Brasilië

Op 12 Junie vier Brasiliane Dia dos Namorados, oftewel "Minnaarsdag". Hulle vier die geleentheid met sjokolade, blomme en kaartjies. Maar in ware Brasiliaanse styl is daar ook musiekfeeste en optredes regoor die land. En die volgende dag is Saint Anthony's Day, ter ere van die beskermheilige van die huwelik.

Suid-Afrika

In Suid -Afrika dra vroue hul harte op hul moue - letterlik. Op Valentynsdag is dit gebruiklik om die naam van diegene in wie u belangstel op 'n papierhart te skryf en dit aan u mou vas te maak. So op Valentynsdag in Suid -Afrika word u dalk net verbaas deur 'n geheime bewonderaar.

As dit die geval is, kyk hier na 'n paar prettige Valentynsdagtradisies van regoor die wêreld.

Suid-Korea

Suid -Koreane is so lief vir Valentynsdag dat hulle van Februarie tot April een keer per maand variasies van die vakansie vier. Op 14 Februarie is dit alles julle, dames. Op hierdie datum waai vroue hul sjokolade met sjokolade, lekkergoed en blomme.

Op 14 Maart, bekend as White Day, is die mans aan die beurt. Sjokolade, lekkergoed en blomme bly deel van die vakansie, maar hierdie keer word van mans verwag om dinge na die volgende vlak te neem deur hul liefie 'n geskenk te gee.

En as u alleen in Suid -Korea is, is daar ook vakansie vir u. Dit word gepas 'Swart dag' genoem. Op hierdie dag vul enkellopendes hul hartseer, leë harte met donker bakke jajangmyeon, of swartboonpasta-noedels.

Denemarke

Valentynsdag is 'n relatief nuwe vakansie in Denemarke. As u 'n vrou in Denemarke is, kry u moontlik 'n gaekkebrev of 'n 'grappiebrief'. In the anonymous letter — made from special fancy paper — there’s a joke or funny rhyme. Guess the sender, and get an Easter Egg later in the year.

Frankryk

Paris, the City of Lights. Widely considered one of the most romantic places on the planet. But a traditional French celebration, called the loterie d’amour, or “drawing for love,” makes an episode of The Bachelor seem like child’s play.

Men and women call to each other from houses facing one another. Couples pair off, and men not satisfied with their match simply leave one woman for another.

Women left unattached gather around a bonfire, burning pictures, swearing, and hurling insults at those who broke their hearts.

If it sounds to you like this tradition could get a little out of hand, you’d be right. Loterie d’amours are now banned in France.

Sjina

Instead of Valentine’s Day, the Chinese celebrate Qixi, or the Seventh Night Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month each year.

On this date, Chinese women offer fruit to Zhinu, the daughter of a heavenly king, in hopes she’ll help them find a good husband. In addition, couples head off to temple to pray for good health and prosperity.

Wallis

To add a Welsh twist to your Valentine’s Day, look no further than your silverware drawer.

For centuries, the Welsh have been exchanging intricately carved spoons as tokens of their affection. Carving a horseshoe means good luck, wheels are a sign of support, and keys mean the recipient now has the keys to the giver’s heart.

Technically, the Welsh don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day at all. Instead, they celebrate Saint Dwynwen on January 25.

Engeland

On Valentine’s Day Eve in some parts of England, women lay 5 bay leaves on their pillow. The idea is to encourage pleasant dreams about their future husbands.

In other parts of England, children wait for Jack Valentine to leave candies and small gifts on their porch.

Filippyne

In the Philippines, mass weddings are common on Valentine’s Day. On the big day, hundreds gather in public spaces to declare their love or renew their vows.

Italië

Italian tradition says it pays for young, single women to wake up early on Valentine’s Day — because the first man they see will become their husband within a year.

Brasilië

On June 12, Brazilians celebrate Dia dos Namorados, or “Lovers’ Day.” They mark the occasion with chocolates, flowers, and cards. But in true Brazilian style, there are also music festivals and performances all over the country. And the very next day is Saint Anthony’s Day, honoring the patron saint of marriage.

South Africa

In South Africa, women wear their hearts on their sleeves — literally. On Valentine’s Day, it’s customary to write the name of those whom you are interested in on a paper heart and pin it to your sleeve. So on Valentine’s Day in South Africa, you just might be surprised by a secret admirer.

Now you have some unique gift ideas for your loved one. Now let’s quit the foreplay and get to what we’re all here for — America’s 25 Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Destinations.

Paris, the City of Lights. Widely considered one of the most romantic places on the planet. But a traditional French celebration, called the loterie d’amour, or “drawing for love,” makes an episode of The Bachelor seem like child’s play.

Men and women call to each other from houses facing one another. Couples pair off, and men not satisfied with their match simply leave one woman for another.

Women left unattached gather around a bonfire, burning pictures, swearing, and hurling insults at those who broke their hearts.

If it sounds to you like this tradition could get a little out of hand, you’d be right. Loterie d’amours are now banned in France.

Sjina

Instead of Valentine’s Day, the Chinese celebrate Qixi, or the Seventh Night Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month each year.

On this date, Chinese women offer fruit to Zhinu, the daughter of a heavenly king, in hopes she’ll help them find a good husband. In addition, couples head off to temple to pray for good health and prosperity.

Wallis

To add a Welsh twist to your Valentine’s Day, look no further than your silverware drawer.

For centuries, the Welsh have been exchanging intricately carved spoons as tokens of their affection. Carving a horseshoe means good luck, wheels are a sign of support, and keys mean the recipient now has the keys to the giver’s heart.

Technically, the Welsh don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day at all. Instead, they celebrate Saint Dwynwen on January 25.

Engeland

On Valentine’s Day Eve in some parts of England, women lay 5 bay leaves on their pillow. The idea is to encourage pleasant dreams about their future husbands.

In other parts of England, children wait for Jack Valentine to leave candies and small gifts on their porch.

Filippyne

In the Philippines, mass weddings are common on Valentine’s Day. On the big day, hundreds gather in public spaces to declare their love or renew their vows.

Italië

Italian tradition says it pays for young, single women to wake up early on Valentine’s Day — because the first man they see will become their husband within a year.

Brasilië

On June 12, Brazilians celebrate Dia dos Namorados, or “Lovers’ Day.” They mark the occasion with chocolates, flowers, and cards. But in true Brazilian style, there are also music festivals and performances all over the country. And the very next day is Saint Anthony’s Day, honoring the patron saint of marriage.

South Africa

In South Africa, women wear their hearts on their sleeves — literally. On Valentine’s Day, it’s customary to write the name of those whom you are interested in on a paper heart and pin it to your sleeve. So on Valentine’s Day in South Africa, you just might be surprised by a secret admirer.
